called a liberal because i supported gay marriage and medical cannabis and i thought george w. bush's economic plan was a bad idea. turns out i wasn't liberal, i was prematurely mainstream. it is hard to imagine no social security, no medicare or medicaid. no civil rights act. no labor rights, no g.i. bill. all of the ideas were considered insanely radical before they were considered liberal then mainstream. but the status quo has been smearing the word "liberal" for dates that liberals are big spending, flag-burning america-hating tax junkies who only want to create child pornography and get you hooked on well ware fare because we think being poor is awesome while smoking crack. dude that, is not fair. all liberals are preachy but liberals are anti-pollution and exploitation of labor, anti-miss ongy and bigotry, pro freedom of the press and pro freedom of religion, pro private property and generally have better taste in music. it is true. liberal is not synonymous with democrat. when i meet someone who only knows of the fox bubble definition of liberal, i tell them the word comes f
on this show, were annoyed be nancy pelosi when she took impeachment of george bush off of the table, because she said it is more important that we enact universal health care. john boehner never made the same pledge. they road the tail of the tiger, and hoped it wouldn't come back to bite them. but now because they never sat down a marker, now they are stuck, so the question is can the republicans still govern without the tea party? because they certainly can't govern with the tea party. >> michael: and they have proven that. speaking of republicans, there are 135 climate deniers in the u.s. congress. today organizing for america has decided to bestow awards on those climate deniers. they have given them unicorns, because it says, quote, one good fantasy deserves another. they are presenting unicorns to the climate deniers there. i think this is great. do you think will help? >> it's another reminder, last year, the republicans gave us the even a sketch, which i gave bella, for her birthday, so i suppose i'm going to have to get her a unicorn this year. >> michael: do we have the chance to t
and the right, by basically going to the right of george bush. he tripled the number of troops in afghanistan when he could have ended the war in the first six months. he increa increased the drone ws around the world, including killing americans with drones. with intelligence aside you can see he basically expanded that. that's the way he has been going all along. i think keeping clapper in there and promoting clapper to head of this committee i think is consistent with the way he has been going defense side agenda. >> and consistently disappointing to so many people who were not expecting this out of this president. james bamford, look for his bo book. thank you for joining us. >> common sense is looking both ways before crossing the street, not marginalizing citizens. >>> only a handful of people showed up for steve king's immigration rally. but his ego is the eyes of a cantaloupe farm. and later a tragic story. this college sophomore was hazed to death, and his congresswoman refuses to do anything about it. the victim's mother will tell us the infuriating reason why. it's tuesday in "the

of the mentality that kissinger had all the way through bush, george w. bush, that saddam hussein was our s.o.b. you know, a strong man, and. >> cenk: and mubarak. >> yes, the white house held on to for dear life to mubarak. it was a military game when they said it's over and now when you look at what is happening around the region. you have syria which was utterly destroyed and destabilized by bush's foolish war. then you have iran and the u.s. citing a proxy war, hezbollah is in syria. you have this drone war going on in yemen. i thought it was impossible for an american president to governor over an era where our popularity i in in arab would be lower. we don't know how many iraqi civilians were killed. the fact that that country was destroyed, a place that has great significance in the history of arab culture and the muslim world, it was unprecedent and rage-inspired. what i think about the drones, john, is that we're--and i've said this before on your show, i think we're making more enemies than killing terrorists with the drone program. it's not that there aren't insane terrorist that

's not a question of do we trust president obama or george bush, the real question is are we going to trust government palin. my answer is no. cenk: i would go further, though. i would ask the question can we trust president obama. they always say it's in the future. well, my god, what if a republican came into office. we had a republican named bush. we elected a guy who put up a lot of placards that said change and then decided not to change a damn thing and then expanded the programs. we found out yesterday that the d.e.a. is actually using some of the spying to go after criminal cases, normal average criminal cases in the united states and covering it up from the prosecutors, judges and of course the defense attorneys. so, it's here. it's already here. so, canning man grayson, i ask you as i often do, what in the world happened to president obama that the guy who ran on change said no, i love what the bush-cheney administration did and i'm going to continue it and build upon it? >> well, it turns out that president obama in some respects is a deeply conflicted person who always looks for

to -- when people say do i trust this president more than george bush? i say yes. you said i think this is the first time since the presidency became imperial more or less after the civil war, that that has happened. >> yeah. now the bush administration, a conservative would pipe in and say there were most fisa amendments after 2008. and that's true, but the democrats forced it, and there were enough votes between democrats and libertarian-ish republicans to get that passed. but i don't think george bush and dick cheney, would have enunciated a policy like obama did on friday. >> stephanie: a lot of liberals unimpressed, you said i am. if you are not signed on to the whole program you might as well be joe mccarthy. and we liberals are trained to think of these liberties as being absolutely nonnegotiable. but they are negotiated all the time. as with anything there are degrees. >> i wrote a column a couple of months ago back when the gun debate was going on, when i was setting out to demonstrate to people that the rights in the second amendment aren't completely absolute. and i said
